Something missing

How is it that a Muslim who says people should pray is trying to infiltrate the country, is most likely a terrorist (or a terrorist supporter), and generally unAmerican, while a Christian who says people should pray is a patriot just trying to make the country better?

And how is it that a Sunni Imam who is ordained and legally clergy must have an ulterior political motive for starting a community center, but a Mormon layman whose entire career is dependent on politics gets a pass on a rally at the Lincoln Memorial being political just because he gives you "his" word that something doesn't have a political ulterior motive?

What's more normal - clergy involved in community centers or politicos hosting religious revivals?

(yeah, we know, if you can't answer the question it's going to somehow be MY fault, but take a stab at it anyway)

    Do the words 'sit and spin' mean anything to you?

  • You know, I have always wondered about Carpy's screen name. Maybe she's dyslexic? easy to reverse a couple letters... or maybe she just likes very large, sickly, bottom feeding fish?... yeah, that seems to fit too.

  • I don't really know how to answer the question, but to say that I'm tired of hearing about everyone's preferance of religion and sex. If you are going to work, paying taxes and not hurting anyone; live life and let me live mine.

     You do understand there are Muslims that are AMERICANS? CANADIANS?......
